More on library results within RedLaser iPhone app
Lots of interest around the recent inclusion of library results in the RedLaser iPhone app. We've been playing around with it, too, and made a quick 43 second video of how it works, just in case you don't have an iPhone:
WorldCat.org results are made possible through the WorldCat Search API and WorldCat Registry APIs. More about both of these tools in the Web Services for developers area. Note that right now RedLaser serves up results for books in the U.S. It's not that we (WorldCat) or they (Occipital) don't want to serve up more results for videos, CDs, DVDs, games, magazines--all the content a library offers (no matter where in the world you or your library is)--but they're trying to walk before they run, and run before they fly. We all look forward to flying with RedLaser.
In the meantime, remember the WorldCat Mobile pilot is still available for ANY Web-enabled phone in the UK, France, Germany, Netherlands, Canada and the US. If your phone doesn't support apps, there is a Web "lite" version that comes up. Plus we're also simultaneously exploring how to make the whole site itself, WorldCat.org, more mobile-friendly so you can have your profile, lists and everything else at hand, in your hand.
